APR GTC-300 and "GT4" Lip Combo E92

Just want to share want i've done during the weekend.

This is just and experiment. im lucky enough I have extra trunk that I can drill on the APR GTC-300 (faded but still ok) and front bumper to install the rep "GT4" lip.

if I want switch to OEM set, I have still a vin match trunk and front bumper.

That being said, my friends and car buddies have 50/50 on this look.

some said its ricer, some said its bad ass.

For me, im ok with it, its because my purpose for these set up is for track use. and weekend maybe?

What you guys think?

Actually really like this look, usually don't like the wing look on street cars but with the lip it fits well.

Looks good. Bumpers and trunks don't have a vin, by the way.

Agreed with everyone above that the lip and wing complement each other. Love the look overall but now really gotta put it them to use

Why the tape on the fenders? Did you forget that bolt and break the tabs?

Looks amazing. What did you use to install the front lip?

I just bought a GT4 rep and gonna pickup some tape. Deciding whether to use self tappers or drill holes and get longer bolts where the factory ones are.

My rep GT4 lip comes with M6 threaded hole. I just drilled the front bumper and bolt / washer it.

also, I used double sided tape and "sandwhich" the lip and bumper.

il get some pictures of the back side of the bumper and send it to you later or post it here.
